Panasonic Microwave Oven (SN686S)

Top of the Line Inverter Technology

A microwave oven with over 1000 watts of power and weighs less than typical models? This may sound like a dream, but that is exactly what the Panasonic Microwave Oven is. Not only does it have high power at 1200 watts, it’s equipped with Panasonic’s patented inverter technology.

The NN-SN686SR model provides a constant, precise heating power throughout the whole microwaving process to ensure even heating and defrosting. Non-inverter microwave ovens give maximum power in short flashes, and thus being the reason why food is warm, and then cold in other bites. Not only will food taste better, but inverter microwave ovens are proven to be 40% faster than non-inverter models, saving you time and money!

The cool technological features don’t stop there. The Genius one-touch sensor cook gauges the amount of steam emitting from your food and signals the microprocessor to automatically adjust the power level, eliminating all the guesswork and hassle of reheating!
